^Jeff Seidel: Joe Murphy, Red Wings' No. 1 pick, is homeless again — and refusing help<

HKN-SEIDEL-COLUMN-SPORTSPLUS:DE Joe Murphy wanders outside in a steady rain, eventually finding a place to sleep for the night in the doorway of a small restaurant.

His black tennis shoes are soaking wet and the bottom of his feet have pruned and turned bright white.

Murphy, selected by the Detroit Red Wings with the No. 1 overall pick in 1986, earned more than $13 million while playing 15 seasons in the NHL, but he is homeless again, just like last year. He doesn't own socks, so he rips a T-shirt into strips and wraps them around his ankles.

^MLB 1994 strike: Angels emerged stronger after end of the season<

^MLB 1994 strike: For Hershiser, it was end of era. For others on first-place Dodgers, the end of a good run<

BBO-MLB-1994-STRIKE-DODGERS:LA — Five days before the longest work stoppage in Major League Baseball history, Orel Hershiser took the mound at Mile High Stadium, in front of an announced sellout crowd of 70,372, understanding it might have stamped the end of an era.

"When I pitched at home last time I was wondering if that could be the last time I pitch in Dodger Stadium," Hershiser said that day. "And today I wondered if it would be the last time I pitched as a Dodger, period. I thought, 'This is odd. This could be it.'"

^Marcus Hayes: Why and when the Eagles should sign Colin Kaepernick<

FBN-HAYES-COLUMN:PH — No, the Eagles shouldn't sign Colin Kaepernick. Not yet.

Carson Wentz is healthy. If that changes, as it changed each of the past four years, then yes, Kaepernick is Plan B, assuming Nate Sudfeld's broken left wrist is fully healed. If Sudfeld is still hurt, then Kaepernick becomes Plan A.

^David Haugh: Matt Nagy has earned the right to play Mitch Trubisky and other Bears regulars as little as possible in preseason games<

^FBN-HAUGH-COLUMN:TB—<Whatever Matt Nagy decides about Mitch Trubisky's workload — or anything else about the preseason, for that matter — he deserves the benefit of the doubt. Winning more games in his first season than any Bears coach in history earned him the right to handle the next few weeks the way he wishes.

^As Carmelo Anthony wrestles with end of NBA career, he hopes his legacy will be defined by community outreach<

BKN-CARMELO-ANTHONY:BZ — Carmelo Anthony has done it all in his basketball career, leading Syracuse to an NCAA championship in 2003, winning three Olympic gold medals with Team USA and earning 10 All-Star selections in his 16-year NBA career.

Though the former Towson Catholic star's accolades have not been enough to convince NBA teams to sign him this summer, Anthony's community outreach contributions have earned him one of the sport's highest honors.

^Arash Markazi: Does LeBron James fit among Lakers greats? Many fans think he needs to win a title<

BKN-MARKAZI-COLUMN:LA -- LeBron James is undoubtedly one of the greatest NBA players of all time, and could go down as the greatest by the time he retires. However, he's finding out that being an all-time NBA great doesn't necessarily make you an all-time Lakers great.
